Year 7 students who attended the Orientation day (2020) and whose parents attended the Parent Information Night (28/1/21) would have received their SmartRider cards already. If your student didn't receive their pack including SmartRider it will be distributed via Homeroom.

If Students did not receive their SmartRider in their pack during week 1 please have student see the Library staff

Students who commence during the year, after our College photos are taken will need to see our Library staff to have their photo taken in order to receive their complementary SmartRider
